Nike Air Jordan II white red unreleased Prototype

Jordan Brand has some beautiful archive pictures online and I love these unreleased
Jordan II prototypes from 1987, that give a bit more insight into the development
What an interesting mix of elements.
I see parts from the Nike Air Ship, Delta Force, Logo embedding like on the windward 
AC or some Cross Trainers, a Jordan 1 bottom Sole (?) plastic eyelets like on the AFII 
or Solo Flight and a very Court Wimbledon AC like midsole…
That collar perforation also resembles an aesthetic used on future Flights.

Nike Air Jordan II Prototype/Development Sample

Christie's NY has laced up this pair of Nike Air Jordan II Prototypes/Development
samples for auction and it made me remember a wonderful exhibition I did 
together with Ceyda, Artoo, Tony Toupet, SneakerTV, Bordellski, the Malawi
Brothers and Marco Colombo in Barcelona, 2008.

Ebay curiosities: Nike Nike Penetrator GT Keith Haring

This beaten Nike Penetrator GT, apparently painted and signed by Keith Haring, was 
up on Ebay not long ago.
The seller was most probably inspired by the latest auctions of vintage sneaker at 
Christie's and Sotherby's for the price. Nevertheless a Post-worthy curiosity.

Adidas x 1. FC Union

Here's another production with Adidas, where I worked infront and behind the camera:
The Adidas ZX 8000 FC Union
A shoe that celebrates the 1. FC Union 
Berlin soccer club and the tradition this model 
shares with the soccer fan scene.
One of the driving forces for the realization of this shoe is Liquit Walker, who is as much a 
fan of the ZX, as he is of FC Union Berlin. 
For the family & friends edition iron lace jewels where forged in a small old smithy in Berlin 
I will post some detailed shoe and making of pictures from our production days next week. 

The Adidas ZX 8000 FC Union is limited to 1966 pairs (a nod towards the founding year of the 
club) and can be exclusively purchased through the Adidas App for 125,55€. One can 
participate at the raffle until the 20th of April, release is the 21st.

Adidas Home of Culture

Another recent project I have been involved with behind and infront of the camera was this 
campaign my friend Mel thought up with Mr. Bianco about my home turf.
Star of the clip is the beautiful Steph, who's just a total pro infront of the camera.
For the film I took part as a sneaker advisor, talking about one of my favorite Adidas models, 
the Rivalry. 
I also got the chance to shoot some 'Kiez' pictures around my home for the print campaign, 
that promotes Steph and the campaign in Snipes Store in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Always a pleasure to work with the three stripes!

Even IG Times made it to Sotheby's

Not a bad price for the whole set actually

David Schmidlapp founded the IGTimes in 1984, making it the first magazine devoted to 
aerosol art and culture. Schmidlapp first approached the project as an outsider, but soon 
became a collaborator with the various artists of the movement. 

In 1986, he teamed up with with legendary "writer" and Hip Hop pioneer Phase 2 (starting
with volume 8), with circulation growing from 2000 to 5000. In 1998, two years after
production ended, an edition of 100 complete sets were issued, or which this is number 2.
David Schmidlapp has been a New York City photography-based artist for the past five decades. 
Photography has been the binding thread for all his artistic endeavors, which have included 
projection, installation, photomontage, filmmaking, publishing and performance.

The IGTimes archive, consisting of thousands of pre-digital artifacts, was acquired Cornell 
University's Library to become part of their Hip Hop collection.
Complete sets have also been acquired by institutions such as MoMA, Getty, Stanford and Yale 
Via Sotheby's
